For ten years in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the killings went on. Women of slight stature were hunted down, bludgeoned and strangled. And what the killer did with their bodies in the privacy of his car, his home, his kitchen, and his shower-was beyond anything police could imagine.
In 1992 Hurricane Andrew devastated southern Florida and the Gulf Coast area of Louisiana. About the same time, women in Baton Rouge and the surrounding area were being stalked by a killer as vicious as Andrew. What many didn’t know at the time was there were actually 3 serial killers, each acting independently of each other. This book is about one of them.
When Sean Vincent Gillis was arrested for multiple murders his live-in girlfriend couldn’t believe it. Sean was never violent, of course, there were those websites of naked dead women bookmarked on his computer, that he showed her. One would think, that after his arrest she would think back on that and go “Hmmm, well maybe …..” While Terri was saying he was a nice guy and would never hurt anyone, the officers who listened to his confession came away with a completely different opinion.
This book is well researched and contains excerpts from his confession which could be considered, explicit, not for the faint of heart. Trail coverage is extensive. After reading this book you will know all you ever wanted to know (and some things you might have preferred not knowing) about Sean Vincent Gillis.
A fascinating, well-researched and written account. I recommend this book.
